Sidse Babett Knudsen, a Danish actress mostly known for her role in the popular TV series 'Borgen', will star alongside Tom Hanks in the third film adaptation of Dan Brown's Robert Langdon series.
Knudsen will play the role of Elizabeth Sinskey, a powerful leader at the UN Health Organization, in the mystery thriller 'Inferno'.
Tom Hanks will return as the main character, symbologist Robert Langdon, as in the two previous adaptations of Brown's novels: 'The Da Vinci Code' and 'Angels and Demons'.
The film will once again be directed by Ron Howard and is scheduled to premiere on 13 October 2016.
